The Silent Army

Note: the original author of the below is unknown to me; but, I applaud their efforts.


A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion: There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin...

Allow me to restate that number: 600,000!

Just the Wisconsin 's hunters are the 8th largest army in the world.

(Thatís more people under arms than in Iran. More than France and Germany combined.)

These hunters, deployed to the woods of a single American state, Wisconsin, hunt with firearms. And NO ONE HAS BEEN KILLED.

That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania's and Michigan's 700,000 hunters, ALL OF WHOM HAVE RETURNED HOME SAFELY.

Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia, and it literally establishes the fact that the hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world. And then add in the total number of hunters in the other 46 states. It's millions more.

________ The point? ________

America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower! Hunting... it's not just a way to fill the freezer. It's also a matter important to our national security.

AND, the above numbers do NOT include the millions of Americans, many former military personnel, who own guns, love our country, and are ready to defend our Nation - but do not hunt.

That's why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed. Food for thought when next we consider gun control. Even if we disregard some assumptions that hunters don't possess the same skills as soldiers, the question would still remain...

What army of 2 million would want to face 30 million, 40 million, 50 million or more armed citizens???

For the sake of our freedom, don't ever allow gun control or confiscation of guns.

AMERICA! Designed by geniuses. Currently run by idiots and many who despise the greatness of our Nation.
